CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WGHP) — Carolina Panthers quarterback Bryce Young is partnering with Bojangles, the restaurant announced in a social media post.
The Panthers selected Young with the first overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft to be the franchise’s quarterback of the future.
Bojangles has long been a frequent partner with the Panthers and their stars. The restaurant was founded in Charlotte in 1977.
Young is not the first Panthers signal caller with a prolific association with Bojangles. Jake Dellhomme famously starred in several Bojangles commercials during his time as Carolina’s starting quarterback.
Star wide receiver Steve Smith frequently appeared in the commercials with Dellhomme, the most notable of which being a Dukes of Hazzard parody.
In other Panthers quarterback/Bojangles-related lore, Cam Newton once accepted a gift of Bojangles from a fan at training camp and brought it back to the quarterback huddle.
